Johannes Brahms: Piano Concertos Nos 1 And 2, With Orchestral Reduction For Second Piano

Books | 2 Piano

Publisher: Dover Publications
Composer: Johannes Brahms
Format: Sheet Music | Score

Ambitious in scale, highly original in both content and design, these popular works exhibit Brahms’ mastery of the concerto and his role as heir to the classical tradition of Mozart and Beethoven. Both works are marked by drama, elegance, rich orchestral textures, and virtuoso writing for the soloist.

Concerto No.1 in D Minor, Op. 15, is a mighty work, featuring a theatrically powerful first movement, a tranquil adagio, and a spirited finale. Concerto No.2 in B-flat, Op. 83, is a majestic piece that includes a notable departure from the classical tradition: the addition of a scherzo between the opening movement and the andante. Both works appear here in authoritative two-Piano editions, featuring the solo part together with an orchestral reduction for second Piano, the standard format for learning and practice. In addition, this volume offers pianists the convenience and economy of two major concertos in a single edition.
